While not important for native windows, e.g. d.text (and d.graph?) can
keep tmp files around so the command will survive d.redraw (if input was
piped from stdin). These are then removed when the .tmp dir is flushed
when GRASS exits/restarts.
Generally tmp files should be removed, but enforcing it is a pain for
debugging and development.
